College and Career Week
Mark your calendars for College and Career Week from Monday, October 24th - Friday, October 28th!
This week is an important time to build and establish a college-going culture at your site for all ages. You can find weekly and daily career exploration and college readiness activities on the S5C site here (scroll to the bottom.)
The week kicks off with the Cabrillo College and Career Family Night from 6-8. There will be important workshops about financial aid, college/life balance, and career and transfer pathways. You will have a chance to meet university representatives from numerous public, private, and out-of-state colleges as well as learn about Cabrillo's certificate and degree programs. There will also be food trucks!
Most importantly, this week is a time for counselors to collaborate with their school teachers, administrators, and community to get "all hands on deck" to support students working on their FAFSA/CADAA, to provide assistance with college essay writing, and to provide structure and support as students search for great fit postsecondary education and begin to navigate this journey. It is also a perfect opportunity to bring in community volunteers and retired faculty.
